If you’re a freelance blogger or writer, content marketing is likely part of your job. But even other freelancers can benefit from a good content strategy.
Unfortunately for some, to participate in content marketing, you must have some content to share. And coming up with new and creative ideas for content can be tough–even if the ideas are only for your own freelancing blog.
This post is designed to help with that problem. I’m sharing a giant list of 27 content ideas that you can adapt for your own content needs. If you liked this post, you may also like Why Freelancers Need Content Too.
Everyone wants to know, what is going to be the next big social media platform? What sites will become as big as Facebook or Twitter?
The truth is that the next big social media site may already be out there. But the next popular site probably won’t be like the social media sites developed five or more years ago.
As a freelancer, you need to stay on top of social media trends. Social media is an important tool to help you market your freelancing business and connect with others. That’s not going to change. But how you do it just might change.
In this post, I share six important social media trends that I’ve observed this year.
Odds are that the next big social media platform will conform to one or more of these trends. If you liked this post, you may also like Should Freelancers “Waste” Time on Social Media?
Quick, what’s your first impression of Tumblr?
If you’re thinking of a site that serves as an online diary for thousands of teens, you’re only partially right. Many of Tumblr’s users are teenagers. However, I was surprised to learn that the average age for a Tumblr user is 34.6 years old (according to Garrett Button’s article, Age, Gender and Social Media Strategy: Audience Analytics for B2B, published on the ArgyleSocial blog). That’s about 15 years older than I expected–certainly at 34 years old most users are past the teen diary phase.
While Tumblr is popular with teens, like other social media platforms before it, it is moving into the mainstream. In fact, according to this recent post from Julie Bort on Business Insider, Tumblr Is Being Used In A Supreme Court Case For The First Time. You read that correctly. The U.S. Supreme court will be referring to a Tumblr blog in a case.
So, as a freelancer, what should you know about Tumblr?
In this post, I’ll explain what Tumblr is and share five Tumblr blogs that might be helpful to freelancers.
Are too many people finding out that you’re a freelancer? Are you constantly bothered by those pesky requests for people wanting to engage you for your services? Are friends and family members referring new business to you?
If you really want to, you can make all that stop. All you need to do is become a secret freelancer. If no one knows you are a freelancer, no one will bother you about it.
Keeping your freelancing business a secret can be a challenge, though.
If you want to be a secret freelancer, this humorous post is for you. I share 10 ways you can keep your freelancing business under wraps.
